Woman Dies After Learning of Father’s Tornado Death

A woman has died after suffering a heart attack when told of her father’s death in the recent Joplin tornado.

From the Associated Press:

Newton County Coroner Mark Bridges says the woman who died Tuesday didn’t immediately learn of her father’s death in the historic storm that has killed more than 120 people. He did not know her father’s age or the circumstances of the man’s death.

Bridges identified the woman as a schoolteacher and resident of nearby Webb City who attended church in Joplin.

The coroner said the death is considered a storm-related casualty even though the woman was not directly killed by the tornado.
